Eliza’s emotions were tangled by this Disney movie of the Rapunzel story. In the cinema, she squirmed with fear, whispering to L that it was the best film she had ever seen. Afterwards, she suggested to L that she would write to the cinema to thank them for making the movie. But that night she appeared on the stairs after bedtime, unable to rid from her mind the thought of the baby being kidnapped.


For world book day, Gabe and his classmates were told to bring their favourite book and pyjamas to school (the note to parents explained that for health and safety reasons, pupils would wear school shoes when in their pyjamas). Gabe remembered his pyjamas but forgot his book, which I delivered. He had asked which story I thought he should take. There have been several which he has read urgently and lauded. He settled on ‘Z-Rex’. That night, and most nights for the past few months, he has taken his real favourite book to bed: 2010 World Cup Official Book.


To demonstrate to Robin how long he should brush his teeth, I rubbed my hand on his head, telling him he could finish when I stopped. Since then, he requires me most evenings and some mornings to stand with him at the sink, rubbing my hand on the top of his head, while he brushes his teeth.
